Kate Moss hits and misses

My calendar has only just flipped over to November 2010 and yet I can already impart a hard and fast rule for 2011′s fashion trends: if intending to partake in the year’s jumpsuit trend be wary, very wary, of flared jumpsuits. Yes, 70s fashion may be having a major impact on current trends. Yes, Kate Moss might have donned a jumpsuit with flares. But no, it didn’t look quite right.

And therein lies the problem: in reflection, Moss’ greatest contribution to fashion is arguably neither her modelling nor her Topshop collection – it’s her ability to style outfits and, thus, set trends. And while she’s on trend with her fringe (it being a 2011 hair trend), jumpsuit, and bell bottoms, the combination of the latter two detract from the overall look.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
